Giving Day 2019

This campaign ends on February 28 at 12:00AM EST


In honor of Giving Day, the anniversary of Colby’s founding on February 27, 1813, Colby is rallying its community to come together to celebrate the values of Dare Northward that have defined Colby for more than 200 years: uncompromising ambition, bold action, and a relentless pursuit of progress.


A generous group of donors has stepped up to amplify your impact on Giving Day. Together, by reaching donor count milestones from Feb. 1 to 27, the Colby community can multiply its support by unlocking up to $250,000.



Make your gift. Challenge your friends. Spread the word through social media. 


Colby's Giving Day features a special Friends of Athletics promotion. Make a gift to your favorite Friends group here.

If you have any questions, we're happy to help. Please contact the Colby Fund office at 1-800-311-3678 or colbyfund@colby.edu.


Let’s dare northward, together.

A gift to Giving Day counts as a gift to the Dare Northward campaign.
